My Students

This school has a very neighborhood-feel in an urban area. We are a K-8, and the middle schoolers are truly great with the elementary students. We run an alternative school program and new experiences are always a wonderful addition to our program.

Because we run an alternative program, we are a 'choice school' and students from all over the city can choose to attend.

We have a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds. We also have a strong LGBTQ community.

They are the most accepting group of students I have worked with. All students are welcome and all experiences are looked at as a benefit and they get truly excited for them!

My Project

I had the pleasure of experiencing a cardio drumming session last year at a national physical education conference. This is a really wonderful, low stress way of incorporating rhythm and dance into physical education! Not to mention the cardio involved!

I have no doubt this will be a really exciting unit for my middle school students, as well as the elementary students I share equipment with!

Beyond the cardio and rhythm benefits, there is a level of ownership that the students will take. Some of the lessons for this unit have students coming up with their own drum routines in small groups!
